Cebu City dumps face shields

Republika

Cebu City – Following the footsteps of Manila, Davao City and Iloilo City, the “Queen City of the South” has thrown out the face shield mandate which the national government began enforcing last year in a bid to curb the spread of the coronavirus.

Acting Cebu City Mayor Michael Rama said the use of face shields in no longer obligatory – except in public transportation, hospitals and other medical facilities.


Rama said the order was based on the findings of the Cebu City multisectoral convergence group that found face shields to be unnecessary as most people out in the streets do not wear then properly anymore, making them superfluous.


Also cited was the statement made by Interior Secretary Eduardo Ano that the feasibility of continuing the national face shield mandate is currently being re-studied by the IATF, despite scientific data saying they are not really needed anymore due to the prevalence of vaccines.
